The Twilight Saga films may be over, but the battle for money from the blockbuster franchise is not. Financier Goldcrest Film Distribution hit Summit today with a multimillion-dollar breach of contract lawsuit (read it here) over the movies. “As a direct result of Defendant’s deceptive accounting practices in which it systematically understates the Twilight revenues and overstates its costs, however, Goldcrest has received many millions of dollars less than it is due,” says the heavily redacted document filed today in LA Superior Court. The plaintiff says they are trying “to recover several million dollars in payments” from the more than $392 million that the Twilight pics have made worldwide. In a 2008 sub-distribution deal Goldcrest says in the filing it agreed to front Summit and others $10 million for four films based on the bestselling vampire books by Stephenie Meyer. For the upfront payment, the London-based financier was to get a hefty slice of the pics’ global net revenue.

Obviously that didn’t happen to Goldcrest’s satisfaction with what they allege are fast and loose moves on the part of Summit, now a Lionsgate subsidiary. “We uncovered numerous improper accounting charges, including retroactive ‘bonuses’ paid to actors Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson after Twilight was released, which were not due under their agreements. These bonuses were paid and charged back to Goldcrest long after Twilight was completed,” said Goldcrest attorney Mark Holscher of Kirkland & Ellis in a statement after the case was filed (Kirkland & Ellis’ Sierra Elizabeth is also repping Goldcrest). Stewart and Pattinson were paid total bonuses of $2.5 million each while screenplay writer Melissa Rosenberg and Meyer got $500,000 each, the 12-page complaint claims. With that said, Goldcrest, in today’s breach of contract and declaratory relief filing, wants unspecified compensatory and actual damages as well as restitution, a court declaration of its rights, legal fees and 10% statutory interest from the time of the breach. It is seeking a jury trial.

It has to bite for Summit, no vampire pun absolutely intended.

5. Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson, “Twilight”
The non-kiss that started it all, the duo’s first nomination paid homage to the famously frustrating drama between Stewart and Pattinson’s characters in the movie, ending with a blue-balled Pattinson staring stunned while Stewart thanked the audience.

6. Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”
The third time “Twilight” won the award, K-Stew finally agreed to the kiss we’d been waiting three years for.

“There’s someone else in the audience that will appreciate it a little more,” Pattinson noted, before running into the audience and planting one on co-star Taylor Lautner. Remember that, nominees: surprise is the name of the game.

15. Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon”
K-Stew and R-Pattz’s second award riffs off the difference between “real life” and what happens on screen. “It takes a lot of smoke and mirrors to do a kiss like this one,” Stewart jokes, while the actual couple repeatedly bumps into each other.

19. Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1″
Poor Kristen Stewart. She does her best accepting the fourth “Twilight Saga” Best Kiss Award on her own, calling for someone to kiss her before pretending to make out with herself. But not quite enough to get into our top ten.

1. Robert Pattinson, “The Twilight Saga” (2009-2012)

Robert Pattinson captured hearts as teen vampire Edward in the four-film series, kicking off the current wave of vampire pop culture. Without “Twilight” (the first novel was published in 2005), there would likely be no “Vampire Diaries,” “True Blood,” “Dracula,” or “Only Lovers Left Alive” – and this list would be, sadly, much shorter.

John Green is known for his book The Fault in Our Stars.

@realjohngreen tweeted,

I’ve been marathoning Twilight movies all day, which has been totally enjoyable…

…and I’m thinking about how easy it becomes to dehumanize the creator or fans of something extremely popular.

I’ve done this, too. I made fun of the Twilight movies without even having watched them. I’m sorry for that, and embarrassed.

When we make fun of Twilight, we’re ridiculing the enthusiasm people have for unironic love stories. Have we nothing better to satirize?

Yes, you can read misogynistic gender dynamics into the stories, but tens of millions of people have also proven that you don’t HAVE to.

Do we really believe that tens of millions of people who found themselves comforted and inspired by these stories are merely wrong?

Isn’t our disdain FAR more misogynistic than anything in the stories?

Art that is entertaining and useful to people is a good thing to have in this world. And I’m grateful for it and celebrate it.

So big ups to the Twilight fandom, and to Stephenie Meyer, who has been relentlessly attacked professionally and personally over Twilight…

…in ways that male authors of love stories never are. I’m gonna go back to watching the movies now. /rant

Article Excerpt:

Fallon, who takes over The Tonight Show on Feb. 17, began making his mark with early segments such as 7th Floor West, his soapy look at life inside the talk show, and the oddball Robert Pattinson Is Bothered – where he played a tree-dwelling Robert Pattinson.

Robert Pattinson Is Bothered

At the height of Twilight-mania, Fallon played an Edward Cullen-like version of Pattinson, sitting in a tree to brood about what most annoyed him. In 2010, Pattinson himself showed up to reveal just how bothered he was by Fallon’s impersonation.
